Canada Goose Stamps

Prairie Canada Goose Stamps

Prairie Canada goose stamps were first issued in 1981. Some 1981 and 1982 stamps were rubber stamped with the name of the county in which they were valid. Starting in 1983, some stamps were rubber stamped with unit numbers which corresponded to particular counties. It is not presently known whether unoverprinted stamps were regularly issued. No unoverprinted stamps have been recorded from 1985 or 1986.

For 1981 through 1984, stamps were issued in panes of five (1x5) with a tab at the top and have dry gum. The panes were perforated 11 3/4 between the stamps and and between the stamps and the tab. In 1982 many of the panes were cut wide, resulting in stamps with perforations on all four sides. In 1983, panes from a second printing were plain rouletted 9 1/2. Although the rouletted stamps have been recorded with numerous unit overprints in unused condition, it is not presently known how many of these stamps — if any — were regularly issued. To date, the editor is unaware of any rouletted stamps used on license and would appreciate photocopies of any such examples, should they exist.

In 1985, stamps were color rouletted 4 3/4 in black on two adjacent sides and are from an unknown format. In 1986 stamps were printed and issued attached to the end of a large tag which was intended to be secured to the goose. The stamps were plain rouletted 4 across the top (between the stamp and the tag) but were otherwise imperforate. No fee was printed on the 1986 stamps. For images of all stamps in this series see 1974 - 1986 South Dakota Goose Stamps.
